Community Tasting Notes 5

October 25, 2014 - 13.7% abv. Medium dark ruby. Expressive and penetrating claret aromas. On the palate cassis, leather and a little minty spice. Flavored are intense, but show finesse and balance. Great depth, nice and long. Excellent now and will improve.

August 7, 2012 - Dark garnet, almost opaque, long lasting legs, aroma of fresh cherries, freezer jam, with a hint of dusty pepper, pure fruit taste with an amazing smooth rich rolling feel, deep tannins containing the acid, very broad on the tongue with a tangy finish. Different aromas and flavors with each sip: heath, glue, pure delicious juice, espresso.
July 26, 2012 - Bay leaf and a savoriness on the nose. Fruit too. Black and brambly fruit. Pronouced nose. Quick palate, just opened, short finish. Opening up. We shall see.

June 29, 2012 - Light and lively, not at all overripe or blousy; yet sweet, simple, and oaky. Way worse than when tasted at the winery. Big disappointment at this price point, though not a "bad" wine.

April 28, 2012 - Visit to Arnot-Roberts (Arnot-Roberts, Sonoma, CA): Ripe blackberry and cassis nose. Medium to full bodied with medium acidity. Black plum and blackberry fruit is a bit deeper than the Fellom Ranch and moderate tannins provide significantly more structure. Really tasty but probably better in a few years.
